Facebook posts shared thousands of times claim only 9,000 migrants illegally passed through the United States border in 2020 during the administration of former Donald Trump, while more than 100,000 have entered the country unlawfully under President Joe Biden in 2021. This is false; US Customs and Border Protection recorded more 2020 apprehensions than stated, and less in 2021.
